Performance Analysis of Device-to-Device Cooperative Communication in 5G Networks

The fifth generation (5G) of mobile networks is proposed to be an amalgamation of various sophisticated technologies; device-to-device (D2D) communication being one of them. In D2D communication, the users are able to establish direct links for communication instead of routing transmissions through a base station, allowing energy and resource efficiency due to cellular offloading.Among the various modes of D2D communication, cluster-based D2D networks have gained significant importance. Cluster-based D2D networks allow devices in proximity to enjoy services such as content sharing and social networking. They can also support communication in post-disaster scenarios, where the traditional cellular network is unavailable due to destruction of infrastructure.

The following research objectives are currently under investigation:

- Devise a probabilistic mathematical model of multi-hop D2D network.
- Design a 5G D2D communication based energy-efficient communication protocol for application related to public safety cenarios.
- Design a multi-hop D2D network algorithm with D2D clusters and cluster head selection.
- Develop and analyze the utility of network coding in D2D networks.
- Devise a trust based D2D network built on experience created trust.
- Develop an energy harvesting based D2D network.
- Devise optimization problem formulation for dual band interface cellular and ultra-high frequency (mmWave) technology.
